    About this property

    • Yarhampton House is a magnificent 17th century farmhouse located in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. Offered to the market for the first time in 50 years, it enjoys wonderous, far-reaching views, captivating country-living at its finest.

      Approached via secure electric gates, the drive sweeps to the principal entrance and central courtyard. Entered by way of a traditional reception hall the accommodation is as grand as it is inviting. Beautiful exposed beams tower overhead which perfectly complement the flagstone floor. The dual aspect drawing room has an attractive central fire with a Jacobean-style surround, exposed joists, and charming views over the garden.

      Arguably the heart of the home, the cosy farmhouse kitchen is equipped with a range of cabinetry, three-bay AGA, pantry, ample dining space and a quaint tiled floor. In addition there is a formal dining room, snug, utility room and cloakroom. The full-glass conservatory is an outstanding feature of the house: an exquisite place to entertain and enjoy large social gatherings, it has a full-width log burning stove, polished stone floor and enjoys commanding views over the landscaped gardens. The cellar equates to 350 sq. ft and provides further storage space.

      The first floor consists of six good-sized bedrooms all of which have been tastefully finished together with a family bathroom. The spacious principal bedroom is served by a well-appointed en suite. The second floor is equally impressive: there are three versatile rooms, a superb attic room (ideal for storage), an orthodox bedroom and a fitted bathroom.

      The formal gardens are a fabulous extension of the farmhouse. Principally laid to lawn, there are a number of themed areas all of which enjoy outstanding far-reaching views of the immediate escarpment. There are an array of herbaceous beds, raised borders, mature trees, dwarf box hedgerow and plants. Furthermore, there are numerous terraces and seating areas, serving as an idyllic place to rest, relax and dine. A particular feature is the hardscaped terrace with pergolas, walk-throughs, manicured flowerbeds and clipped hedging. In addition there is a feature plunge pool and a lawn tennis court, perfect for a Summer's day.

      The Yarhampton Mulberry Tree sits near the southern boundary and is believed to have planted not long after the house was built as part of the campaign started by King James I of England in 1607 when he asked the nobility to plant 10,000 mulberry trees to support an English silk industry to rival that of Continental Europe, in particular France.

      The outstanding mellow brick barn equates to a further 3,500 sq. ft and affords startling potential. Ideal to be used in a host of ways, it currently serves as storage, garaging, a workshop and an office. Versatile by nature, it would be an ideal place to house classic cars, art studio or as a contemporary working space. In addition there is a separate 3-bay garage and garden store room.
